Yeah yeah yeah. We're halfway through July, but here comes the fight of the month poll for June. In my humble opinion, one fight really stands out, but I'll let you guys make the decision. Still, it was a really solid month of fights. The candidates are (in order of occurrence):

Miguel Cotto vs. Joshua Clottey - This one was a dirty fight but an entertaining fight with a lot of changes in momentum. Clottey came out strong early but faded late as Cotto was able to win via unanimous decision, overcoming a nasty gash in the process.

Jean Pascal vs. Adrian Diaconu - Tons of back and forth action in this one as Pascal was able to grind down Diaconu in a fight between Montreal residents.

Fernando Beltran Jr. vs. Monty Meza-Clay - Tons of leather thrown in this bout, as Beltran averaged over 100 punches a round, and not to be outdone, Meza-Clay averaged nearly 90 punches a round himself.

Marcos Maiadana vs. Victor Ortiz - Both fighters had to make their way up from the mat in this bout, but at the end of the day, Maiadana was able to weak Ortiz down, who essentially quit when one eye started to swell while he had a cut over the other one.
